"Mrs. James Alsop at home on the
Thursday of DecerAl)er from two to five
r. m. Hotel Kelleran, West Roykton
street.
It was the last Thursday of December,
and quite a little throng of fashionable
Ieople had assembled at the Hotel Kel
lernn in response to this card.
Estella Blodgett had .always been
called a beauty, -Why, was not so easy
to say, for, as she herself once candidly
remarked, When yon come to look' at
me, I'm not so very protty in fact, no
prettier than other people." Thia was
quite true. Beauty often consists in a
certain nameless charm; brightness, un
expectedness, tact, and sweetness com
bined, and these Estella ha&ryflTor the
rest, there were dark hair andeyea, a
clear, brilliant skin, a dimple, a white
slender hand; but, as I said, she "yr as 'no
jrettier than American girls are apt' to
be, only people persisted ' in thinking
her so. She 'wore these unmerited
laurels gracefully enough; success did
u ox, spoil ner; ner list oi mends num
bered a. many women as men, which is
always a test to the qualities of a beauty.
But never, people agreed, had Estella
Blodgett been sweeter, more unaffectedly
cordial and fascinating, than was Estella
Alsop that afternoon as she glided about
her pretty new. -rooms, welcoming,
greeting, making every one feel at
home.
'How happy she looks!" observed
Mrs. Dalrymple. - -x
Well, who wouldn't be happy with
tho Uveliest French trousseau that ever
was, and such a nice husband as hers?"
asked Constance Ferris. " '
Two or three people laughed at the
unconscious ' warmth of Constance's
tone. '.'"'
For my part," puftn Alice Ordway,
I never could quite see that James
Alsop was so charming. He shuts me
right up; I don't get on with him at all.
Estella used toioel so too, and I never
understood how she came to like him at
tho lost."
' Ah, you never tried him in an ele
vator," said Mrs. Dalrymple, looking
funny.
In au elevator! What do you
mean?" "
" Oh, thereby hangs a tale; you know,
of course, that James is a professor, arid
excessively wise apd learned?" '
"Yes; I know so much."
I usod to be dreadfully afraid of
him," went on ; Estella, s with a little
laugh. "He isn't a society man at all,
", and doesn't know how to get on with
young ladies. Ho used to talk to me
sometimes at parties, but I was always
stiff and silent. He made me feel shy
and ignorant and light-minded some
how, tho only man that ever did, and I
quite thought that I disliked him. ' In
fact, I used to say so. Several of the
girls felt the same.
"Tho Fey tons lived iu these rooms
last winter. They were lovely people,
gny and kind, always giving the pleas
antest little, parties. S Well, they were
going to have a little dinner on Mrs.
bound for the first story or the second,
I remarked, Goodvning, Mr. Alsop.
Are we en route lor Mr. Peyton s ?' .
For Mrs. Peyton's,' he replied,
with a stiff, little . bow. r,TThen. we took
our place in the elevator as gloomily! 68
though we were going to a funeral in
stead of a dinner party. Dear me, how
f jinny it was'! j ThmanTelbw 'started
us, and up we went. There wasn't any
' elevator boy ' then. That's an , im
provement put in since dor accident. ,
" An accident! Did you have one ?"
"Oh dear, yes the most ridiculous
possible. ' Half-way between tho second
floor and tho third the elevator stuck.
What was the matter exactly I have never
been able to 'understand though5 James
has explained it several times: but I
think; the chain was dogged I in some
way, ana woman t woric eitner up or
down. When it first stopped we thought
it som-. mistake, and waited patiently,
but after a minute James crrew -aneasv,
He twitched the rope, but all to no pur
pose; then he began to call; hoping
somebody below would hear us,
" We were so near the Peyton' floor
that we could see the Lights shining
through the glazed door at tol : The
elevator had an open-work roof criss
cross, you know, with large holes ? be
tween the 'criss-crossirWs. ' "It 'was not
dark; we could see each other " plainly.
By -and-bye we heard bells ringing below
in a distracted way, feet running up the
stairs, and voices J then the .door at top
shot back, aod some one called out :
' Miss Blodgett, are you there ?"
" Yes,' I said ; i wish I wasn't.

" All this time I was lost in wonder
that he should be so asmeable. I can't

him about all sorts of itrifles, which the

TJie Health of Totens.
The recent report of the Massachusetts
State board of health for 1874 presents,
in one bfjts supplementary papers, some
facts which are interesting because of
their significant bearing upon the im
portant question of the health of towns.
The death rate for 1872 in Massachusetts
was 2 272-1000 per cent.-, or one to every
forty-tour , persona! f Although Massa
chusetts possesses a 'most 1 healthy cli
mate, the death rate is considered as very
high. The report gives some interesting
figures, which go to show that the death
rate in closely populated cities is greater
than in those of smaller population Is
truef For iiistance ifr 1872 the death
rate in the city of New" York, was 1 32.6
per thousand, while in Newark it was
almost the same 31.6 only one in' a
thousand less. Now, the difference in
density of population between New York
andr pfewark is almost as great as it can
be between two "large towns. The Bame
remark applies to Hoboken, wher the
death rate was even somewhat greater
than it was in New York, 32.9 per thou
sand. In New Orleans, which is densely
populated, and which is subject to yellow
fever, the deakk rate wJepian that of
New York 30.6 per thousand; while in
Memphis, which is not densely popu
lated, and where yellow fever is not
endemic, the rate reached the exception
ally; high iBgnre of 46. 6 per thousand.
These facts would seem to showj that
we are not yet sufficiently advanced in
sanitary science to form a well-founded
conclusion as to the effect of density
mere density of population upon the"
health of the human race. But as to
one point, all facts, all reason, all prob
ability, point to one conclusion ; and that
is that sicknessfirjddeath-andlin parti

the zymotic type are connected directly
with the presence ajj-the gaoes of decom-
positiotf Pure water fevers .health, but
it nas Deen lounu tnat its introaucuon
into cities has not diminished the death
rate in any very striking flegTe. ! But
the Jremotal eu maaseAfif jflecoxaposing
matter is always followed by a diminished
death rate. Dr. Derby, in his report on
no wickedness to which he is
not equal. : His hypocrisy then greatly
helps him to succeed, i I have seen him
when he looked the- perfect ; picture of
meekness and humility ; when it seemed
that even Moses himself must defer to
him in those crowning virtues. ' Yet if
Moses or any other patriarch had ven
tured to approach him without a tribute
of corn, the mule would have kicked him
into the remotest antiquity. I have seen
him deceive a wagonmaster himself, pre
tending that he could not go a step
farther, Taut the moment he was released
from harness, bounding off as fresh and
lively as a colt. . 7
The depraved mule rejoices in his
heart if he can make some one miserable.
It is a trait for which in the West they
have a specific term. ' They call it ' pure
cussedness.". When a mule devotes his
whole, life to illustrating this idea, he
finds a , thousand ; opportunties, and
achieves a i remarkable success.- It is
this instinct which prompts - him to en
courage the attentions of his driver for
a year or two, just for the sake of getting
a good chance lo kickjua brains out : It
isthis which .leads -him to stand still
when ' other 'people ' wonid be better
pleased if he would go. It is this which
often jdecittW;hiirjwleti he really does
start, to send his rider on ahead of him.
Perhaps, too it is this spirit that gives
the . mule his strange idea of justice,
which seems to; be to visit npon others
the afflictions which he suffers himself .
Thus it is said that if. a bad lot of mules
are in line, and you' kick one of '; them
violently, instead of retaliating on the
one who kicked him, he simply kicks
the mule behind him. The second mule
passes, the kick o the thirds hj to the
fourth, and so on till the' primary ven
geance has gone the whole length of the
lineleaving the lost nule unjustified.
Perhaps i is only an illustration of the
principle that misery loves oompany; '
has made her' money by . successful
speculations and by her.life4ong habit
of saving. 1- or years she has lived at a
boarding-house in -Baltimore, seeing
very little company. Her costume is
ancient, and there is nothing about hex
appearance that suggests the mrvelous
beauty that led captive the heart of Je
rome Bonaparte. Her eyes alone retain
some of the brightness of former days.
For forty years Madame Bonaparte
kept a diary, in which she recorded her
views and observations of European and
American society. Some of her re
marks are severely sarcastic. ' A well
